About Me

I'm a designer, director and creative collaborator. My experience and passion spans branding, animation, directing and content-creation. I'm hands-on, equally at home in digital, print, broadcast or physical spaces. Above all I'm a big believer in design's unique potential to communicate ideas, tell stories and engage an audience. Born and raised in East Africa I've lived and worked in the UK, Spain and South America. I'm currently a freelance Creative Director in New York.

I speak at conferences and festivals on a regular basis. I've always cared more about doing great work than winning awards, although I've won a few along the way - twice being nominated for an Emmy and winning in 2009 for my work on Mad Men. My work has been exhibited at the Museum Of The Moving Image and the Museum Of The City Of New York, been recognized by D&AD, BDA and The One Club and has featured in publications from ID magazine to Creative Review.
